or not the house was ever going to get around to taking a vote on immigration, since immigration was the one policy issue the republican party formally recommended to its elected official members that they do something about after the mitt romney presidential loss last year. so, congressman tom cole was asked by russell berman of "the hill" newspaper in d.c. if there might possibly be time to give immigration a vote in the house between now and the end of the year, since it already passed the senate and, frankly, the house doesn't seem all that busy. here was his response. >> but, you know, immigration is a divisive and difficult issue itself. the idea that congress can -- look, we haven't -- we're not sure we can chew gum, let alone walk and chew gum, so let's just chew gum for a while." >> we don't know, we can walk and chew gum, let alone walk -- you know, can we just chew gum for a while? congressman raul labrador of idaho had been very involved in the discussions about immigration on the republican side. he now tells the "associated press", "i don't think there is going to be sufficient time f

the week to discuss further amendments and other topics like replacing our broken immigration system of the more disappointingly the little light workload this week of a day and a half is emblematic of how the next two months are calendar for this house of representatives. there's only 19 days left of work for this house before the end of the year. the house is only in session for 2 1/2 days before we recess in a week. again, i think that the american people expect and demand a minimum 40-hour workweek from the people that they hired to represent them here in washington. i think most people of this country have more than 19 days that they have to work in november and december. that's two full months. november and december. and yet we only have 19 days over that two-month period that this body will be in session. and yet there are critical issues that the american people are demanding that we act on. as an example today is the 302nd day of 2013 that we have failed to bring to the floor a comprehensive immigration reform bill. time is running short. and the need for a comprehensive imm
immigration reform, which would increase the need for skilled labor that many people say is critical to their location decisions. so this is a very top priority of the president come as is making sure our training programs are more demand than, that we are working, you and community colleges, so if you want to locate here, there's someone who says if you are a little unsure whether there is a particular skill need that may not be met in a particular location, that we will work with you to make sure there is a training program that works for you. that is one area. the second area which the president has put out is to have a grand bargain on jobs where you would lower the corporate tax rate, have a lower corporate tax rate, and at the same time use some of the one-time funds to strengthen our infrastructure so that your supply chains can move more quickly. these are important components we have to do. the third one is that we have to give and we fight very hard on this a greater sense of stability. i guess you could say we want more manufacturing and less manufactured crises. we have n
at the territory out there. first moved away to get to the right of cruz, now he's dropped his own immigration bill. these guys all believe that the future for the next few years of the party is over on the radical side of the right. who is the top leader? it's ted cruz. if you look at the mean developed with rush limbaugh, sean hannity and others, after the disaster and nearly something worse, our spineless leaders cave just on the verge of victory. ted cruz would have led him to victory if he hadn't given in. got the zeitgeist. >> what's incredible, heather, the minute after the shutdown ended -- another senator sworn in, maybe he can make a difference, cory booker, official democratic senator for new jersey. to ted cruz and his influence, 27 gop senators disproved in the last two days of their own vote to raise the debt ceiling. if there is a question about who has the captain's meal in the republican party that would prove it. we did this but hate we had to adopt this moderate position. >> this position as people who run the government. >> yes, exactly. it's really unfortunate. it's ted cruz, a
lgbt women, immigrant women and native american women. what is that? who are these people? over 60% of the republicans voted against -- in the house voted against the violence against women act. this is about respect for who we are, for what our judgment is, what our responsibility is to use our free will. sizing and time of our families. decisions made within our families. not within the courts or the legislatures of some states. >> it struck me that part of the strategy, frankly, on the violence against women act was kind of shaming the republicans into this idea that we would put aside certain categories of women that wouldn't be covered. and i'm wondering, the senate is going to do its first test vote on enda. but the question is will it -- what will happen in the house? what do you think the prospects are in the house? >> let me just say on that subject, as with shutting down government as opening it up as with the immigration bill as with 95% of -- at least 95% of the democrats are on the legislation and will vote for the legislation. so we only need 10% of the republicans wi

president obama renewed his push for immigration reform. listen to this. >> everybody knows that our current immigration system is broken. across the political spectrum, people understand that. we've known it for years. let's not wait. it doesn't get easier to just put it off. let's do it now. let's not delay. let's get this done. and let's do it in a bipartisan fashion. >> and what do you know, cynthia? days later marco rubio backs away from the immigration bill that he worked on. i mean, is he jumping ship because he doesn't want to help president obama succeed? if obama's for it, they're against it. is that what we're looking at here? >> if obama's for it, they're against it. that is absolutely the code of the republican party at the moment. let's look at immigration reform here. there are a kwoum things going on here. it would be a signature accomplishment for the president. if he were able to get immigration reform because immigrants people here without papers have been languishing in this country for decades. the other thing republicans fear, though, is if they allow undocumented immig
and it is getting smaller and smaller and smaller. >> why? >> it's because of the mass immigration, the change in demography. if you take the three minorities, asians, african americans, which are 40% of the country, they vote 80% democratic and that is growing gradually and gradually and gradually. and the death of the republican party as we knew it is inevitable. >> really? >> you shouldn't have to be a white european to like the republican party. the republican party appealed to people beyond that particular demographic throughout its history. republicans today are so obsessed with their dislike of this president. dislike of obama care and offering no positive ideas at all. they are dominated by saying no to anything that the president wants to do and they are fighting among themselves. you have the so-called insurgent republicans determined to kill off all of the traditional republicans in the primaries. so, i think it's tempting for democrats to just sit back and let the destruction continue. but we need two viable parties in this country. >> and you sought this out? >> away from the

immigration reform done. immigration reform will reduce the deficit by nearly $850 billion over the first 20 years and it will grow the economy by $1.4 trillion over 20 years, which adds 5.4% to the gdp by 2033. it has broad bipartisan support from democrats and republicans, labor leaders, law enforcement, and faith leaders. the president is willing to work with the blonde both sides of the aisle to get things done. it is good for business. it is good for our economy as a whole am i and it is the right thing to do. we believe it is time for the house to follow the senate and take action. secondly, as you are already as early as this evening a-15,enate may vote on s which would place into law a comprehensive and lasting protections against employment discrimination based on sexual or gender identity. you may have seen the op-ed in the huffington post calling upon the president can sign it into law. we encourage lawmakers to act on this important legislation. because in america, who you are and who you love should never be a fireable offense. a qualified worker should not fear being fired from

is the chance that senator rubio's office gives marco rubio supporting a conference meeting. the immigration bill with a more limited bill that might come out of the house. rubio spokesman said we are recognizing the reality that the house will not pass immigration reform. this time the only approach that has a chance of success is to focus on the aspects of reform on which there is a consensus through a series of individual bills. rubio is saying if there is a dummy bill out of the house that would force a conference commito to get the bill passed, he would not support his own bill. next up, $24 million is how much money outside groups have spent either for or against all the folks running for governor or state legislature in the state of new jersey. they said that's a record amount for the exlection that will likely see chris christie cruising to a second term. remember between new york and philly it's expensive to run ads in the garden state. a lot of money for an election we know is going on. next up, 45 is the margin that makes chris christie jealous. how many points bill deblasio has i
